Sen. Lindsey Graham says he'll enroll in the Affordable Care Act and skip a taxpayer subsidy available to members of Congress even though his premium will skyrocket, The State newspaper reports.

In a press release Monday, the South Carolina Republican and longtime critic of President Barack Obama's signature healthcare plan, said, "I don’t think members of Congress should get a special deal.

"Obamacare is being pushed on the American people and we should live under it just like everyone else.”

Graham could have taken advantage of a taxpayer subsidy that would have footed the bill for about 75 percent of his insurance premium.

"My insurance costs are going up about $400 a month, more than 200 percent, under Obamacare. In addition, my health care coverage will be a fraction of what it used to be," he said in the press release.

"Sadly, I’m not the only one who will feel the negative effects of Obamacare. It’s happening all over South Carolina.

"The worst is yet to come," he added, "but I will continue my fight to repeal, replace, defund and allow Americans to opt-out of this horrible government program,” he said.

In October, Graham told ABC's "This Week," that Obamacare will be "a liability" for Democrats in future elections.

In a warning message to Democrats, Graham said, "You own Obamacare, and it's going to be the political gift that keeps on giving."
